A Library and Archives Update

Sadly, the BSR Library is still closed to outside readers until further notice.

In recent months, we have been adapting the way the library operates, to respect anti-Covid regulations. Our library has been open 24/7 to Award Holders and colleagues as usual, apart from the two basements which are only accessible to staff. On request, we deliver all the required books to the relevant desk and we also deliver books to anyone who is required to stay in their rooms or flats to quarantine on arrival at the BSR. The consulted books are also put into quarantine for 3 days before re-shelving.

We appreciate how frustrating and difficult life is for everyone, particularly if you are doing research, and we would like to help. If you need scans from publications in the Library’s collections, do get in touch at library@bsrome.it and if you have enquiries about the Archives please write to archive@bsrome.it.

We will do our best and look forward to seeing you again in, hopefully, the not too distant future!
